Gord, I think this an amanita muscaria (one of the poisonous mushrooms in the Northern hemisphere). The Amanita Muscaria tends to vary in color from yellow to orange to red. but the white stalk and the flap as well as the speckled umbrella pretty much points it out as one.

If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family anatidae on our hands. ~ Douglas Adams
I have no idea what mushrooms those are, Bryan, but as an off-topic question, I notice that you are often reporting from Mount Outram. I have never hiked it and you seem to be regularly attracted to it . What draws you to this mountain? My scrambles book says it is 5 to 9 hours just to summit. Not a short walk in the park!
